Shaka And Shine
Let the sun feed you
No worries no care
Let the island breeze breathe you
Let the sand warm your toes
As anything goes
The water so clear
Your truth
Yes it knows
Did you know
You are loved?
Yes you
You are loved
Smile and dance and cross the line
Fabulous you

Shaka and shine
Raise your hearts
Let’s be proud
Raise your hearts
Sing it loud and
Shaka and shine

The palm trees are singing
And the sun
Setting just right
360 views
It’s giving you life
Such a colorful journey
And it welcomes us all
Hawaii is calling
Dream big and act bold

Did you know, you are loved?
Yes you, you are loved,
Shine and dance and cross the line
Fabulous you

Remember
Who you are and what you do
Is the most real and great
Original you

So, put three down
Keep two up
Just like that

Shaka and shine
Just like that
Shaka and shine
